I can't remember much about my first trip to Manila at age 7, but I do remember the plane ride from Manila back to Cebu. It was my first plane ride. That was back in the days of the early 70's. A night flight, that I can still vividly remember. I don't know why, but it was just me, and my elder brother, aged 9 at that time. Was there anyone else? Gosh, I can't remember. Maybe, we were accompanied by my aunt or uncle. It was just too long ago to remember, but what I do recall is sitting at the very front row of the plane, watching the beautiful flight attendant. The nice part was all the stewardesses were fussing about how cute I was and all that (at age 7, one can get away with almost anything). I was showered with tons of candy, complimentary cards, and all that food. Those were the days when give-aways were really something special. Sadly, the flight was just an hour and everything went by so fast. Gosh, I wonder who doesn't remember their first flight. It was something I can fondly remember, although not all of it, but much of it, to this very day.
